The Toronto Maple Leafs are honouring Wendell Clark tonight, and I’m using this as my chance to say that this guy was always one of my favourite players. I once made an “I-know-I’m-a-sucker” hockey card deal because the bait on the other end was Wendell’s $4 rookie card… which I still own!
Seriously, this guy was the total package for a hockey player, so Wendell, I salute you, you Saskatchewan boy, you!
A few highlights from this video…
2:16 – This is still one of the most solid hits I’ve ever seen.
3:16 – This looks like UFC and is but one example of why I believe that the only guys who ever “dropped them” with Wendell were guys who SHOULD HAVE been on medication of some sort. There’s just no way…
3:39 – One shot.
4:09 – Wendell was great, but maybe not quite… you know.
